Mary Attwood, ND

Dr. Attwood is a Naturopathic doctor who also does massage therapy, informed by her yoga practice and long history of natural healing exploration. She earned a doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine at National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Southwestern University.

Along with extensive offerings including yoga, meditation, Shiatzu, Swedish massage, herbal medicine, nutrition, homeopathy, CranioSacral Therapy, and Quantum Energy Medicine, she is a medically-informed healer.

Dr. Attwood helps people shift and heal with tangible, life-changing tools and medicines to support health and personal growth. No two patient visits are exactly the same. She listens carefully, with a calming presence, to her patients’ stories and uses healing approaches to facilitate desired changes and ease discomfort or pain.

Her practice is trauma-informed as well as inclusive of race, gender identity, size, faith, and age. She believes all bodies deserve wellness and opportunities to thrive, while recognizing that not all bodies have access to the care they deserve, especially those in marginalized communities.

Her first question is: what’s out of balance in the body? Might healing require, for example, the right herb or a letting go? Might hands-on massage provide relief? Or might energy work help her patient shift into a more luminous space of greater peace, inner-strength, and self-assurance?

Her goal for her patients is that they leave her treatment room feeling better and feeling more like themselves.

Dr. Attwood specializes in helping her patients with:

  • Women’s health: perimenopause & menopausal symptoms
  • Physical medicine: body work, CranioSacral, massage therapy and naturopathic manipulation techniques (NMT)
  • Nutrition & lifestyle counseling
  • Holistic mental health
  • Homeopathy
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Quantum energy medicine
  • Person-centered-Interviewing and active listening

Dr. Attwood’s home life is rich with spontaneous dance parties and explorations in nature with her spouse and two tiny humans.
